(b) The medical advisor to the local board shall (1) give each registrant who presents himself for medical interview such examination as he deems necessary, or (2) review each affidavit of a reputable physical or official statement of a representative of a Federal or State agency referred to him by the local board. From such examination or review, the medical advisor to the local board shall determine whether the registrant has one or more of the defects or conditions listed in Part 629 of this chapter and shall record his findings in item 20 of Section II of the Record of Induction (NME Form No. 47).

The local board with which the request for transfer for medical interview is filed shall forward the request to the registrant's own local board.

After the quotas are fixed, credits shall be given in filling such quotas for residents of such subdivisions who subsequently enter upon active duty in the armed forces. Until the actual numbers necessary for determining the quotas are known, the quotas may be based on estimates, and subsequent adjustments therein shall be made when such actual numbers are known.

§ 631.2 Determination of quotas, credits, and debits. (a) The Director of Selective Service shall determine the quotas, credits, and debits for the nation and for each State.

(b) The armed forces will furnish to each State Director of Selective Service a Report of Home Address at Time of Last Entry into Service (NME Form No. 53) for each person who is on active duty and who reports his or her permanent residence as being located in that State. Each State Director of Selective Service will similarly receive a home address report for each person, whether a registrant or not, who is a resident of is State and who subsequently enters upon active duty in the armed forces other than by induction through a local board.

(c) When a person on active duty in the armed forces is separated from active duty status or is reported as being a deserter, the appropriate State Director of Selective Service will receive a report of separation from the armed forces for each such person.

(d) Each State Director of Selective Service shall report periodically to the Director of Selective Service on State Monthly Report of Deliveries, Inductions and Examinations (SSS Form No. 262) the number of Reports of Home Address at Time of Last Entry into Service (NME Form No. 53) and the number of reports of separation from the armed forces properly forwarded to him for crediting and debiting purposes in his State.

§ 631.3 Determination of local board quotas, credits, and debits. The State Director of Selective Service for each State shall determine the quotas, credits, and debits for each local board in his State. He shall from time to time call upon each local board to report the number of registrants in the local board, the number classified, and the number it has placed in Class I-A and Class I-A-O who have been found acceptable for service in the armed forces.

§ 631.4 Calls by the Secretary of Defense.

The Director of Selective Service shall send two copies of each such Notice of Call on State (SSS Form No. 200) to the Secretary of Defense.

§ 631.6 Calls by State Director of Selective Service. The State Director of Selective Service, upon receiving a Notice of Call on State (SSS Form No. 200) from the Director of Selective Service shall (a) allocate to the local boards concerned within his State the number of men which his State is called upon to furnish to service in the armed forces and (b) issue to each local board concerned a notice of Call on Local Board (SSS Form No. 201) directing the local board to select and deliver for induction the number of men who have been found to be acceptable for service in the armed forces fixed in such Notice of Call on Local Board (SSS Form No. 201). The State Director of Selective Service shall send a copy of each Notice of Call on Local Board (SSS Form No. 201) to the Commanding General of the Army Area in which his State is located and a copy to the commanding officer of the joint examining and induction station to which the selected men are directed to report for induction.

§ 631.7 Action by local board upon receipt of notice of call. Each local board, upon receiving a Notice of Call on Local Board (SSS Form No. 201) from the State Director of Selective Service for a specified number of men shall select and order to report for induction the number of men required to fill the call from among its registrants who have been classified in Class I-A and Class I-A-O and who have been found acceptable for service in the armed forces, except that a registrant classified in Class I-A or Class I-A-O who is a delinquent may be selected and ordered to report for induction notwithstanding the fact that he has not been found acceptable for service in the armed forces. Such registrants shall be selected and ordered to report for induction in the order of their dates of birth with the oldest being selected first; Provided, that any such registrant who is a delinquent shall, regardless of his age, be selected and ordered to report for induction before any other registrant. When two or more such registrants have the same date of birth they shall, as among themselves, be selected in alphabetical order. The men so selected and ordered to report for induction shall be men to whom the local board has mailed a Certificate of Acceptability (NME Form No. 62) at least 21 days before the date fixed for induction; Provided, that a registrant classified in Class I-A or Class I-A-O who is a delinquent may be selected and ordered to report for induction to fill an induction call notwithstanding the fact that he has not been mailed a Certificate of Acceptability (NME Form No. 62). Whenever the number of postponements of induction materially reduces the number of men the local board actually can deliver in response to a call, the local board shall issue orders to report for induction to such numbers of additional men as may be necessary to meet the call, taking into account the number of men to be delivered following the expiration of postponements previously granted.

TRANSFER FOR INDUCTION

§ 632.9 Certain registrants may request transfer for induction. (a) Any registrant who is so far from his own local board that reporting to his own local board for induction would be a hardship may, subject to the provisions of this section, be transferred for induction to the local board having jurisdiction of the area in which he is at that time located. Application for such transfer may be made by the registrant at the time he receives his Order to Report for Induction (SSS Form No. 252).

(b) Any such registrant desiring to be so transferred shall immediately report to the local board having jurisdiction of the area in which he is at that time located, present his Order to Report for Induction (SSS Form No. 252), and complete, in quintuplicate, the request portion of Request for Transfer for Delivery (SSS Form No. 260).

(c) The local board with which such registrant files such request shall investigate the circumstances of the registrant's absence from his own local board area. If it finds that he does not have a good reason for his absence, it shall endorse its disapproval upon his request, mail the original thereof to the registrant's own local board, mail a copy to the registrant, and file one of the remaining copies. Such registrant shall then be required to report in accordance with the Order to Report for Induction (SSS Form No. 252) of his own local board.

(d) If the local board with which the registrant files such request finds that he has a good reason for his absence from his own local board area and that he is so far from his own local board area that it would be a hardship for him to return to his own local board area for induction, it shall endorse its approval upon his request, mail the original and two copies by air mail (unless ordinary mail is as expeditious) to the registrant's own local board, mail a copy to the registrant, and file the remaining copy. When necessary for the accomplishment of the early induction of the registrant, the local board with which the registrant files his request may telegraph the registrant's own local board notifying it of the approval of the registrant's application for such transfer and requesting that the necessary records of the registrant be immediately forwarded to the local board of transfer. In such instances, the local board of transfer shall confirm the telegram by immediately mailing the original and two copies of the Request for Transfer for Delivery (SSS Form No. 260), with the endorsement of approval thereon, to the registrant's own local board.

(e) When the registrant's own local board receives the approved Request for Transfer for Delivery (SSS Form No. 260), or receives a telegraphic approval of a request for transfer as provided in paragraph (d) of this section, it shall:

(1) Immediately complete on the original of the Request for Transfer for Delivery (SSS Form No. 260) the order transferring the registrant for induction.

In the event that the papers of the registrant have not already been forwarded to the local board of transfer, the forms referred to above shall be accompanied by the original and two copies of the Record of Induction (NME Form No. 47), all the records referred to in subparagraph (2) of paragraph (a) of § 632.5, and any other records designated by the Director of Selective Service.

(f) When the local board to which such registrant is transferred for induction receives the papers from the registrant's own local board, as provided in paragraph (e) of this section, it shall proceed to deliver him for induction as soon as practicable after the date fixed for him to report for induction in the Order to Report for Induction (SSS Form No. 252) issued by his own local board. If possible, the transferred registrant shall be delivered for induction with the next call on the local board to which he has been transferred, but if there is to be no such call at an early date, it shall deliver such transferred registrant specially whenever the joint examining and induction station is receiving men. When the local board of transfer determines to deliver such transferred registrant specially, it shall notify its State Director of Selective Service and request that the necessary arrangements be made for the time and place at which such transferred registrant may be delivered specially. The local board to which such registrant has been transferred for induction shall prepare an Order for Transferred Man to Report for Induction (SSS Form No. 253), in duplicate, mail the original to the transferred registrant, and file the copy. The local board to which such registrant has been transferred for induction shall add the name of the registrant to its Delivery List (SSS Form No. 261) and shall make a notation of such transfer and the identity of the local board from which he is transferred in the "Remarks" column of the Delivery List (SSS Form No. 261).

(g) The local board to which such registrant has been transferred for induction shall not substitute the transferred registrant for one of its selected men, but shall deliver the transferred registrant in addition to any deliveries it otherwise would make to fill its own call.

(h) When the transferred registrant has been inducted or rejected or if he fails to report for induction, the local board to which such registrant was transferred for induction shall complete the Report of Delivery of Transferred Registrant (SSS Form No. 263-A), detach and forward it to the State Director of Selective Service for the State in which the local board of origin is located, and forward all papers with reference to such registrant, with the exception of the Delivery List (SSS Form No. 261), to his own local board.

(j) The transferred registrant, if inducted, shall not be credited to the local board to which he was transferred for delivery, but shall be credited to his own local board.

§ 632.10 Transfer for induction directed by Director of Selective Service. (a) The Director of Selective Service may direct that a particular registrant or a registrant who comes within a described group of registrants be transferred for induction to such local board or local boards as he shall designate.

(b) A registrant selected for induction shall be transferred for induction to the local board having jurisdiction of the area in which he is at that time located whenever, from information in his file, it appears that the registrant is located in one and the registrant's own local board is located in another of the following: The continental United States, the Territory of Alaska, the Territory of Hawaii, Puerto Rico, or the Virgin Islands of the United States.

(c) To accomplish the transfer for induction under paragraph (a) or (b) of this section, the registrant's own local board shall:

(d) The State Director of Selective Service of the State in which the registrant is located shall check the documents received from the registrant's own local board and, if not already accomplished, insert thereon the name and address of the local board in his State to which the registrant is transferred for induction and forward the documents to such local board. Unless the transfer of the registrant for induction is cancelled under paragraph (e) of this section, the local board to which the registrant is transferred shall cause the registrant to be delivered for induction and shall take the other actions provided for in paragraphs (f), (g), and (h) of § 632.9, and the State Director of Selective Service for the State in which the registrant's own local board is located shall take the action provided for in paragraph (i) of § 632.9.

CLASSIFICATION AND INDUCTION OF DELINQUENTS

§ 642.11 Registration and classification of unregistered delinquent. When a delinquent who has not registered reports or is brought before a local board, he shall be registered and the local board at which he registers shall enter on line 2 of his Registration Card (SSS Form No. 1) an address within the jurisdiction of such local board. As soon as possible after his registration, the local board shall classify him as provided in § 642.12.

§ 642.12 Classification of registrant delinquent. Any delinquent registrant between the ages of 19 and 26 may be classified in or reclassified into Class I-A or Class I-A-OI, whichever is applicable, regardless of other circumstances: Provided, that a delinquent registrant in Class I-C who, after completion of any period of active service in the armed forces of the United States under the provisions of the Selective Service Act of 1948, has been separated from the armed forces or transferred to a reserve component thereof may not be classified in or reclassified into Class I-A or Class I-A-O, under this section unless his classification out of Class I-C is specifically authorized by the Director of Selective Service.

§ 642.13 Certain delinquents to be ordered to report for induction. (a) The local board shall order each delinquent registrant between the ages of 19 and 26 who is classified in or reclassified into Class I-A or Class I-A-O to report for induction in the manner provided in § 631.7 of this chapter unless (1) it has already done so, or (2) pursuant to a written request of the United States Attorney, the local board determines not to order such registrant to report for induction.

§ 642.14 Personal appearance, reopening, and appeal. (a) When a delinquent registrant is classified in or reclassified into Class I-A or Class I-A-O under the provisions of this part, a personal appearance may be requested and shall be granted under the same circumstances as in any other case.

(c) When a delinquent registrant is classified in or reclassified into Class I-A or Class I-A-O under the provisions of this part, an appeal may be taken under the same circumstances and by the same persons as in any other case.

§ 642.15 Continuous duty of certain registrants to report for induction. Regardless of the time when or the circumstances under which a registrant fails or has failed to report for induction pursuant to an Order to Report for Induction (SSS Form No. 252) or pursuant to an Order for Transferred Man to Report for Induction (SSS Form No. 253) it shall thereafter be his continuing duty from day to day to report for induction to his own local board, and to each local board whose area he enters or in whose area he remains.

DELIVERY OF DELINQUENT REGISTRANTS

§ 642.21 Procedure. (a) If a delinquent registrant reports to or is brought before a local board other than his own local board, the local board to which he reports or before which he is brought shall advise his own local board by telegram or other expeditious means that the delinquent has reported to or has been brought before such local board and that he will be inducted if it is satisfactory to his own local board. The registrant's own local board shall reply by telegram or other expeditious means.

(b) If the registrant's own local board advises or if it is ascertained from the United States Department of Justice that the registrant is delinquent because he has failed to respond to an Order to Report for Induction (SSS Form No. 252) or an Order for Transferred Man to Report for Induction (SSS Form No. 253), the delinquent shall be delivered for induction and the local board to which the registrant has reported or before which he has been brought shall prepare such papers as may be necessary in order to effect such induction and forward copies thereof to the registrant's own local board. The induction of such a registrant shall be reported to the registrant's own local board in the same manner as if the registrant had been transferred for delivery to the local board from which such registrant was inducted.

(c) If the registrant's own local board advises that no Order to Report for Induction (SSS Form No. 252) or Order for Transferred Man to Report for Induction (SSS Form No. 253) ahs been issued to such registrant or that the registrant is no longer a delinquent, it shall advise the local board before which the registrant has appeared or has been brought of the action to be taken with reference to such registrant.

MEN IN CUSTODY

§ 642.31 Completing records of man liable for training and service. (a) Provided they are required and have not already been accomplished, the following steps shall be taken in connection with every man who has registered or who is required to register under the provisions of Title I of the Selective Service Act of 1948 immediately upon his reporting to or being brought before a local board or immediately upon his being taken into custody or his being placed in confinement.

(c) If the signature of such man is required upon any form after it is filed out and he is unable or refuses to sign his name or make his mark upon any such form, a member or clerk of a local board or the superintendent, warden, or other law enforcement official shall sign such man's name and indicate that he has done so by signing his own name beneath the name of such man. The act of a member or clerk of a local board, or of the superintendent, warden, or other law enforcement official in so doing shall have the same force and effect as if such man had signed his name to such form.

§ 642.32 Obligation of man in custody, confinement, or imprisonment. No man is relieved from complying with the selective service law during the time he is in custody, confinement, or imprisonment. He shall perform the duties and shall be accorded the rights and privileges of all registrants.

A copy of such Delinquent Registrant Report (SSS Form No. 301) shall be place in the delinquent's Cover Sheet (SSS Form No. 101).

The local board may enlist the aid of local and State police officials or any other public or private agencies it deems advisable. In no event shall the local board order or participate in the arrest of a delinquent.

(c) Whenever the local board suspects a person, other than one of its own registrants, of being a delinquent, it shall, upon its own motion or upon request of the United States Attorney, advise such person by letter that he is suspected of being a delinquent and directing him to submit to the local board evidence concerning his selective service. It shall be the duty of the person to whom such a letter is mailed to present such evidence to the local board and, if directed to do so, to appear personally before the local board.
